Active Rigs At 68; Five New Permits; Sixteen Permits Renewed; Eleven DUCs Completed -- January 16, 2019

John C. Bogle, founder of Vanguard, dies at age 89. In a way, he seemed liked a second father to me. Wow, so sad. What a great legacy.

Bruin E&P Operating, LLC: incredibly exciting, right now. It looks like they are laser-focused on the Bakken, and hitting on all cylinders, as they say. 

Active rigs:

ISO New England

Wow, I have not seen this in awhile. Electricity provided to the grid by coal jumped to 4% today; renewable energy down to as low as 9% today but back to 11% now. Electricity appears to have averaged well above $75/MW since midnight early this morning.

Later: after posting that, I received this note from someone who really, really follows this very, very closely.
Last night the Pilgrim nuke plant in Massachusetts started dropping output and now, according to the site, is only operating at 26% capacity.

That should stress the region's generating ability as this cold front moves in.

In a somewhat related vein, the Vineyard Wind project is expected to announce a very minimal compensation package to Rhode Island fishermen for the loss of fishing grounds due to their proposed offshore wind farm.

The meeting to announce the granting/withholding of the necessary permit by the Coastal Resource Council has again been postponed; the next meeting has now been moved to January 29.
